I saw Glenn cross-post a link to the SB Nation mothership about "How to Watch Kentucky-Georgia" before Saturday's pointy-ball game, and came up with the following jokes:
- "How to Watch Kentucky-Georgia": 1. Turn on television to the UK-UGA football game. 2. Sit in front of television. 3. Cry uncontrollably.
- "How to Watch Kentucky-Georgia": Don't do that, why would you do that?
- "How to Watch Kentucky-Georgia": Drink 3-5 cups of pure grain alcohol; turn on ESPN2 at 7:30 p.m.. You'll feel the same tomorrow morning, with or without the pure grain.
- "How to Watch Kentucky-Georgia": Watch Alabama play Chattanooga and then go out to dinner with someone you can tolerate for 3-4 hours.
Okay, that's enough hilarity. These jokes aren't free.
Getting to the point of this post, soccer, you'll recall that our boys in blue and white are done for the season. I'll check back in with them before the MLS SuperDraft, whenever that is, to see if Tyler Riggs or Brad Doliner get any attention; that would be cool.
You'll also recall that our Lady Soccer Cats had a daunting task of going to southern California and trying to win a second round NCAA Tournament game against
Cthulu UCLA. The task daunted, indeed, and unfortunately, our Lady Cats were bounced by the Lady Bruins 3-0 last Friday night. While the end of the season came sooner for Kentucky than we hoped, it was, by any estimate, a good season nonetheless. From UKAthletics.com:
The season was yet another one for the record books under Lipsitz, as Kentucky won 14 matches and finished in the top five of the Southeastern Conference for the second year in a row. The senior class of Kayla King, Danielle Krohn, Kacie Kumar, Caitlin Landis and Ashley VanLandingham combined for 51 wins in the last four years, making it the second winningest class in UK women’s soccer history and only the second class to win 10-plus matches all four years.
Things are looking up for next season, too, as Arin Gilliland, Zoe Swift, and the entire back line will return to play in 2014.
That's it for now from A Sea of Blue's THIS WEEK IN SOCCER. See y'all next season.
